You may have noticed this little wood box when I shared my Pallet workbench.
I used some extra wood we had laying around to build the box. I actually got the wood from my neighbor who knows I'm a hoarder of project material. Before he got rid of it he asked if I wanted the extra pieces and of course I said "YES!". I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I don't turn down free wood.
I also picked up one shoe storage box ($0.88 at Wal-mart) and a pack of L brackets.
Once I had all the wood pieces cut, I sprayed them green and screwed them together using 8 corner brackets. I made sure the screws went in just under the lip of the plastic container to hold it in place.
I then stenciled "Paige's Flowers" on the front of the box.
I wanted to put a few rocks in the bottom of the container, so the kids and I took a trip to the backyard stream to get some rocks. Before I layered the rocks I drilled three holes in the bottom for the water to drain then placed coffee filters over the holes.
A few weeks later and the seeds are already sprouting.
I just hope those little green seedlings actually grow into flowers!
